The NCBE Has Spoken – July 2020 Bar Exam Will Proceed

On May 5, 2020, the NCBE made their official announcement regarding the July 2020 Bar Exam.

Based on this information, NCBE has determined that there will most likely be a sufficient number of July examinees to administer the bar exam. Accordingly, we plan to make our exam materials (MBE, MEE, and MPT) available to those jurisdictions that choose to administer an exam in July.

NCBE, 2020

At this time, less than half of the jurisdictions have delayed or rescheduled the exam away from July 2020. As a result, the NCBE will be offering the exam materials and grading for three potential dates:
